For this Christmas week episode, we’re joined by our Pin Pal Megan Sunday to discuss 1997’s Borrowed Hearts, a movie that just loves committing HR violations. Along the way we talk about Angel Long Cons, whether little girls care how their parents met, and the potentially kinky sex games between Roma Downey and Eric McCormack. It’s a heartwarming tale for the whole family.

Listen to more of Megan on the Let’s Get Weirding podcast at letsgetweirding.libsyn.com or wherever you get podcasts.

On this week’s episode, we find out if we actually do love a giant, goofy-looking turtle by discussing the 1998 family comedy Everyone Loves Mel (suggested by friend and former guest Christy Admiraal). This movie has so many things to love: a surly teen, a wily grandpa, a greedy land developer, a giant turtle that can… well, you’ll see. We critique Roger’s singing skills, Mom and Dad’s parenting skills, and Grandpa’s secret-keeping skills, as well as speculate about what other special abilities Mel might possess.

 

Gena from the Kill by Kill podcast joins us to wrap up Dog Cainmas to discuss The Three Dogateers, a Christmas movie that forgets it’s a Christmas movie for at least half its runtime. This movie’s got it all: bizarre commercials featuring Santa Claus, an insane dog catcher, Dean Cain singing to a jelly donut (seriously). This is a perfect way to cap off the holiday season and close out the absolutely insane year that was 2017.
